A Step Back in Time at the Phoenix Fire Museum
Nestled away in downtown Mobile lies a tribute to the local firefighter heroes at the Phoenix Fire Museum. Complete with fire engines that are over 100 years old, this place has plenty of history that is bound to explore the vast technologies that have developed in firefighting history.
Located inside a restored 1855 fire station, the Phoenix Fire Museum offers artifacts from around Mobile. The equipment on display has all been restored and is even cared for by the staff of the fire museum.
There are two floors to the museum. The first floor mainly focuses on the fire engines that have been used in Mobile. The second floor looks to Mobile’s firefighting history prior to the early 1900s.

Of course it would not be a fire station with a pole that slides to the first floor for those fire emergencies! The Phoenix Fire Museum has some very knowledgeable guides that are helpful in understanding the significance behind the equipment on display.
